Had to reinstall my OS, now I can't use the internet

\015 Had to reinstall my OS, now I don't have networking, it will connect to the router but won't get a default gateway address... I can't surf the internet. it's a dell inspiron 6000 \015\012\015\012I downloaded the Broadcom network drivers and the Intel PRO wireless drivers from the dell website and installed them. that part works, it connects to the router fine. \015\012\015\012when you run ipconfig it says "media disconnected" under network controller and there's no IP address or default gateway.\015\012\015\012other computers on that router work fine\015

Answers :

I'm going to suggest something simpler for you to try...may work, may not work....Go to start > Run > type "msconfig" in the box and hit enter. When the window opens make sure the computer is on NORMAL startup. If it is good, close window and let the computer reboot. When it reboots and the DELL spkash screen shows strike the F8 key repeatedly until you see a screen filled with startup options. Scroll to "Safe mode with networking" and select that, hit enter and let the system boot. when it boots completely, check if you can get online...if youcan, browse around a bit a check a few different sites. If you can, then reboot the computer back to normal windows start up and try to get online.
Be certain that you have downloaded the correct drivers. Find your hardware by booting with F2 then view Devicesviewting!--\015\012 /* Style Definitions */\015\012 p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal\015\012\011{mso-style-parent:"";\015\012\011margin:0in;\015\012\011margin-bottom:.0001pt;\015\012\011mso-pagination:widow-orphan;\015\012\011font-size:12.0pt;\015\012\011font-family:"Times New Roman";\015\012\011mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";}\015\012p\015\012\011{mso-margin-top-alt:auto;\015\012\011margin-right:0in;\015\012\011mso-margin-bottom-alt:auto;\015\012\011margin-left:0in;\015\012\011mso-pagination:widow-orphan;\015\012\011font-size:12.0pt;\015\012\011font-family:"Times New Roman";\015\012\011mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";}\015\[email protected] Section1\015\012\011{size:8.5in 11.0in;\015\012\011margin:1.0in 1.25in 1.0in 1.25in;\015\012\011mso-header-margin:.5in;\015\012\011mso-footer-margin:.5in;\015\012\011mso-paper-source:0;}\015\012div.Section1\015\012\011{page:Section1;}\015\012-->\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012 /* Style Definitions */\015\012 table.MsoNormalTable\015\012\011{mso-style-name:"Table Normal";\015\012\011mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0;\015\012\011mso-tstyle-colband-size:0;\015\012\011mso-style-noshow:yes;\015\012\011mso-style-parent:"";\015\012\011mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt;\015\012\011mso-para-margin:0in;\015\012\011mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt;\015\012\011mso-pagination:widow-orphan;\015\012\011font-size:10.0pt;\015\012\011font-family:"Times New Roman";}\015\012\015\012
